Excellent view

Worth the steep climb for the view. Would have been helpful for the information boards to be in English too.

Not a great tourist attraction.The best thing is the view over the city, but I wouldnt recommend a great detour to visit this place, Stop fro 30 minutes if you already is in the neighborhood

After crossing the bridge and walk straight up, you will see the fortress. The fortress area is not massive but it gives u a 360 view of the Trondheim city - my favourite spot. There is a restaurant and a free toilet in it. I enjoy it here.

Only a 15-minute walk from town centre. Offers a great view of Trondheim centre and the fjord. Good place for a picnic on a sunny day, playing, yoga, having a walk or any other outdoor activity. New Years Eve fireworks are popular as well.

From Kristiansten Fortress it is possible to have an excellent view of Trondheim and the fjord. The memorial to the patriots who were killed during the Nazi occupation is a poignant reminder of Norway's past.

It is the nearest and nice spot around the city center were the northern lights can be seen. The view on the city is also great, both at day and night

A fairly basic looking like fort building, but the walls around and the range of guns from the centuries adds a little charm. Great views over the city. Interesting walk up the hill from Bakklandet old town, if have a bike there is an electric pulley to help it up. Great views over the city from the top. Warning in... More

The Kristiansten Fortress is a nice building and a nice area for walking, playing games, having a barbeque, or just to relax while you watch the city.
